The piriformis syndrome is one of the etiologies of pelvic pain due to the sciatic nerve's entrapment by the piriformis muscle. Nowadays this syndrome might be difficult to be diagnosed. The aim of this study is to know the prevalence of anatomic variations in our population that may contribute to the appearance of piriformis syndrome. Furthermore, anthropometric measurements of the piriformis muscle and the sciatic nerve procedures are studied for a possible application in the gluteal region.

Abstract

The piriformis syndrome is one of the etiologies of pelvic pain due to the sciatic nerve's entrapment by the piriformis muscle. Nowadays this syndrome might be difficult to be diagnosed. The aim of this study is to know the prevalence of anatomic variations in our population that may contribute to the appearance of piriformis syndrome. Furthermore, anthropometric measurements of the piriformis muscle and the sciatic nerve procedures are studied for a possible application in the gluteal region.
